Customer Question

I have Outlook 2016 on my PC and had it linked to both my work email and a personal Hotmail account. I recently resigned from my job and have removed the work account from Outlook. However, I am receiving frequent messages in a brown dialogue box in the lower right of my monitor that say "Your settings for (myname)@employername).com are out of date. What does that mean and how can I get those messages to stop? Thank you.

Hi! My name is ***** ***** I'm happy to help!

You'll need to remove the profile from control panel.

A profile consists of accounts, data files, and settings that specify where your email messages are saved.

  1. Exit Outlook.

  2. Open Control Panel by doing one of the following:

    • In Windows 8 and Windows 10, choose Start and type Control Panel.

    • In Windows Vista and Windows 7, choose Start > Control Panel.

  3. Open Mail by doing one of the following:

    • In Windows 10, choose User Accounts > Mail.

    • In all other versions of Windows, choose Mail.

    NOTE: The Mail icon appears after Outlook starts for the first time.

  4. Choose Show Profiles.

  5. Select a profile.

  6. Click Remove.

I need to step away from my computer for a while. Is there a way I can reconnect later for remote assistance?
